<p>Despite recent advances, multimedia use in knowledge management remains largely limited to retrieval systems. Multimedia data introduces several challenges to KM systems, including the uncertainties associated with media analyzers and the need for good scalability and effective user interfaces. Architectures capable of handling system complexity will also play a crucial role in deploying multimedia-based KM solutions. The prospects for fully exploiting multimedia content are promising. Given current trends in audio and video analysis, multimedia storage and distribution over the Internet, developments in XML representations, and integration with knowledge portals, the authors expect multimedia data to become truly pervasive.</p>
